2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S: Now standard with wider Turbo body

The new Type 992 2020 Porsche 911 will have the wider body, previously used only on the Turbo and above models, as standard throughout the range.


The heavily flared fenders give the new 911 a serious coke bottle shape, and the updated 3L twin-turbo flat six engine doesn’t disappoint. It has an extra 22kW (30hp) for a total of 331kW (444hp).

The RWD 911 Carrera S needs 3.7s for 0-100km/h, and the AWD 911 Carrera 4S just 3.6s. The optional Sport Chrono package cuts the 0-100km/h down by a further 0.2s.

All models are 0.4s faster to 100km/h than the outgoing Type 991 model. Top is now 308km/h (191mph) in the Carrera S, and 306km/h (190mph) in the Carrera 4S.

The front the new Type 992 is 45mm (1.8″) wider, and the car has 20″ front wheels and 21″ rear wheels. Other changes include full width LED taillights, flush fitting door handles, 10.9″ infotainment screen, and two configurable displays on either side of the tachometer.
